The GeoEel LH-16 has been designed to meet the requirements of the near surface marine engineering site investigations. The modular system comprises of 16 channel digitising cans, offering 16kHz sampling, which sit in line with the solid streamer sections.
The system retains the flexible modular construction of the GeoEel enabling users to tailor the number of channels to meet the project brief and deployment environment. With 1-2m hydrophone group intervals 16 channel streamer sections are easy to manage and store whilst also being a cost effective. The diameter of the streamer remains 44.5mm allowing the system to be deployed by hand off small vessels with a small tail buoy for tracking the streamers location with GNSS. For larger deployments the streamer sections support birds for active control.
In addition to the higher 16kHz sample rate the GeoEel LH-16 also boast a much higher data transfer rate to allow for up to quarter second shot intervals (with a 48 channel array) with sparker and boomer sources.
The GeoEel system can be run from a standard Laptop (with solid state drive for best right to disk preformance) with Geometrics CNT-2 software installed. Multiple shot and gather windows, bar graph noise displays, windows for shot timing, gun energy, brute stack, tape status, spectral analysis. Auto-switching between storage devices, dual tape writing. Supports multiple printers. Full log kept of all parameter changes. Integrates navigation, gun, and bird data into SEG-D or SEG-Y header.
